Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

haha my brm can't even slightly be compared to ohlys. He's up like twice my lifetime profits this year alone and still at $30s.

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Spent like 1.1k in marketplace, I really shouldn't visit there cos I always end up spending like 1k lol. Have something to rail for scoop though (since I have exams so will only play HU events) so all is well. Have to last 3 more days without chat though

BR: $6108
VPP: 17677

It's good when you run below EV but still winning money..

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Haven't played as much recently so haven't been regularly updating. Not going to be able to put in good volume next month with lots of uni work to do so gonna aim for a good ev roi to make up for it, hoping that I achieve a 4%+ evroi which should be pretty easy if I stop sitting lots of regs (since hardly anyone seems to care about trying to make people move down anyway) and stop having long rematching v regs I do play, hopefully be able to achieve a decent profit with fairly bad volume by doing that.

BR: $6427
VPP: 17892


Month summary:

ev: $1930
winnings: $2437

How much extra do you get from vip bonuses each month? Do you think it's possible to maintain platinum vip at the 30's?

I don't really keep track but I guess with vip + fpps over $400, I choose to keep fpps though for supernova bonus so I don't get a steady $400 a month through that.

Yea it's ridic easy to maintain platinum at $30s. Like this month I just got a new laptop so I had to set all that up which has killed 3 days, I have finals coming up and a lot of cwk deadlines and I still expect to make platinum so that should give you an idea of how easy it is. You only need like 72 games/day

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Not played much so far this month but going to start trying to play a lot more now. Played some cap as well but only gonna post end of month graph for that cos volume isn't big. Down slightly in that but month is off to good start. Made one or two errors that I wasn't happy about but still feel like I'm on for at least 4% evroi.

BR: $3753 (withdrew like $3000)

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Not been playing a ton recently, although did play abit on ftp to clear a bonus. Started to grind 4 mans (both $35s and $60s) though but don't have ev graph for them. Also ftp missed like my first 50 games where I was up $300 or so. Also bought 2.5% of €urop€an in scoop High event 1 and he cashed for 220k so gonna get some money shipped from that, good month so far though

Well small graph of recently anyway, dam ev keeps going down. Failing at not playing regs though

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Ok so to time for update. Haven't been playing a ton recently but got shipped 6k from €urop€an cos I had 2.5% in scoop which was awesome. Still have 1k out in stakes as well. Decided to self exclude on stars for 1 week though after a bad session yesterday (+ scoops tilting me). Thought it would be a good idea to start sitting $115 4 mans, managed to lose first 5 and then decided would be fun to flip for $288 wher ewe send over afterwards cos partner in these games was also stuck, least one of us could have a semi ok day if we flip:

Full Tilt - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 2 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

shiftizzle2k9 (SB): 200 BB
Bluenowhere4 (BB): 200 BB

shiftizzle2k9 posts SB 0.5 BB, Bluenowhere4 posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Bluenowhere4 has 8 J

shiftizzle2k9 raises to 200 BB and is all-in, Bluenowhere4 calls 199 BB and is all-in

Flop: (400 BB, 2 players) 3 T 6

Turn: (400 BB, 2 players) 4

River: (400 BB, 2 players) T

shiftizzle2k9 shows 2 Q (One Pair, Tens) (Pre 57%, Flop 70%, Turn 86%)
Bluenowhere4 shows 8 J (One Pair, Tens) (Pre 43%, Flop 30%, Turn 14%)
shiftizzle2k9 wins 380 BB


So looked like it was gonna be him having the good day lol. Tried to get people to do a $500 flip so I could get unstuck but nobody would . Decided to play 1 more 115, lost. Decided to play 1 final 115 (if I lose I'll be stuck 1k ) but we win, play 1 more and win again so was only -700 for day after stupid flip session.

Also did 3 $100 flips v someone else at irish which was fun, managed to win $100 there. One I lose was dealt 2356cc pre and flop rainbow 3 high cards. Had to discard and try and draw to 6 high bdfd lol, was worst sweat in a flip ever.

Withdrawn 6k as well just so I don't have all my money online. Current BR including withdrawlas is ~$11,500 so up like $11,000 from start of year including games + stakes.

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Ok so haven't updated in a while, had a lot of exams but I should be back to playing more regularly now and at some point soon moving to $60s. Since my last update I lost a lot at MTTs and 4 mans (playing $35s through $115s, occasional $200 as well), here's my graph since since start of may:

[img]http://s16.************/n270g8d51/mayjun.png[/img]
screen shot on a pc

Looks worse than it really is though since I teamed 4-mans so didn't actually lose money in them I don't think and was only playing a lot of scoop $109 and $215 tourneys cos €urop€an sent 6k from the part I bought in him from scoop so I had a bit of extra gamble money, still looks pretty ugly though lol.

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Pretty bad day today, decided to quit before I went -1k. Was all going so well until I just got absolutely godmoded by everyone. Felt like they could actually see my cards at one point they way they were playing. Hopefully gonna try and up the volume over next few days though and gonna sit 1 reg who made me get a month ban from chat every time I see he is online.

Last few days graph:

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Had a pretty good last few days, running good and getting that ev line back on track which is nice, still pretty unhappy with how I played one or two spots though. Also realised I'm on at 21k vpp so gonna have to either start playing 140g/day or play some HU cap so I can get huge vpp days, not sure I want to put up with those swings again though.

Graph for last two days:

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Gonna start updating more regularly again now I have a lot of free time over summer and I'm back home as well now. Only at 21k vpp so way behind supernova pace though

Feeling pretty confident about my game though and will probably move up around august/September, graph for last 2 months:

Still feel like there are quite a few spots I sometimes make mistakes in and I've been sitting quite a few weak regs in this sample so could probably have got it even higher. Still be happy to maintain this over next 2.5k games as well though.

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Very good month so far, up like 1k in ev already, $600 in actual money and managed to get 150 games in today. Hopefully can keep this level of volume up as well as playing well and have a huge month.

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Bad volume over the last two days but ev is still going up despite not playing great so I guess I can be kinda happy. Gonna aim for 200 game day tomorrow and stop just one tabling whilst I watch films. Also gonna try and start to tag more interesting hands, I always have some that I could post but forget who they were against so end up not posting them.

Also gonna offer freeroll to first person who quotes this post, if I don't play 200 games (record in a day is 211, lol) tomorrow I will give away $100*. My volume has been appalling recently and maybe if I start risking losing $100 every time I play bad volume I might actually start to play, hopefully.

*Barring exceptional circumstance, will only send on stars.
